RAF Police Associates

This website is nothing to do with the organisation known as the RAF Police Association although I am a member and Lifetime Vice President of the Association. It may feature Association members on its pages and is used by RAF Police Association members in preference to the new RAF Police Association website.

It is provided, and has been provided by me personally for the last 18 years, as a link for RAF Police Association members, serving and past members of the RAF Police and Provost branch and associated trades and groups as well as for non RAF personnel to maintain contact and provide a service.

It is the site formally known as the RAF Police Association website.

Marriage Allowance lets you transfer £1,100 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner - if they earn more than you.

This reduces their tax by up to £220 in the tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year).

To benefit as a couple, you (as the lower earner) must have an income of £11,000 or less. 

You can get Marriage Allowance if all the following apply:

  • you’re married or in a civil partnership
  • you don’t earn anything or your income is under £11,000
  • your partner’s income is between £11,001 and £43,000
